It is with sadness that we report that Adam Warne, percussionist with Unfurl, passed away last week.
Adam had over 25 years experience playing percussion and in Unfurl, his focus was on Egyptian percussion including the riq and darbouka.
Unfurl were scheduled to perform at The Lescar on May 3rd and today, Jez Matthews posted this message -
Some very sad news. We’re sorry to have to let you know that Adam Warne, much loved and respected percussionist with Unfurl, passed away last week.
As a result the double bill of Unfurl with the Sheffield Indian Music Ensemble on 3rd May is cancelled.
We’re thinking about Adam's family and friends, and of course all the guys in Unfurl and the Sheffield Indian Music Ensemble.
We will keep you posted as soon as we have confirmed a replacement band for 3rd May.
Hoping that you all have a lovely holiday weekend, with family, friends, food, drink and music.
As Jez says, our thoughts are with Adam's friends and family.
